Xingjian ZHENG (郑行健)

Welcome to my site! I am currently a fourth-year PhD candidate in Finance at Shanghai Advanced Institute of Finance (SAIF), SJTU. My research interests involve two questions: (1) How does fintech correct investors’ behavioral biases? and (2) How to combine fintech (textual analysis, machine learning, LLM, big data, etc.) with traditional asset pricing and corporate finance research topics? Also, I am keen to conduct A/B tests on fintech or marketplace lending platforms and experiments under the topic of ESG issues.

I am currently working on multiple projects related to fintech/ESG. Any comment or discussion is more than welcome.

My committee chair is Prof. Feng LI, and I am expected to graduate in 2026-27.

You can reach me at 211 West Huaihai Road, Datong Plaza, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, China 200030. Hope to see you in person!
